ly named Fairewood Frolic but goes by Rocki, capped two days of competition by 2,500 dogs in 153 breeds at the 122nd annual show. "This is like the Super Bowl," said the terrier`s handler, Peter Green, marking his fourth time winning the Best in Show prize. The 3-year-old terrier, who was top-ranked and heavily favored, is pregnant and will now retire from shows to breed, her owners said. She beat out a robust Alaskan Malamute, two ornately sheared poodles, a glossy Gordon Setter, a long-haired Dachsund and a fluffy Old English Sheepdog in the final round of competition. Backstage, owners armed with hair dryers and combs fussed over their dogs as they waited to compete. The groomer of a shaggy Briard explained that the dog`s coat takes up to six hours to dry after a shampoo, even with the aid of a blow dryer. A curly-haired Irish Water Spaniel wore a snood - a bonnet around her long ears - to protect her careful grooming while she ate. On par with the Olympics for dogs, the Westminster show was first held in 1877 and is one of the oldest continuous sporting events in the United States. Now millions of viewers watch it on cable television. The first dog ever to win the Best in Show prize was a fox terrier, and terriers have won more than a third of the top prizes in the show`s history. The Best in Show dog took home a purple and gold rosette ribbon and a large silver cup.
